Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

An integer overflow, leading to an array index error, was found in the
way the CCID driver processed a smart card's serial number. A local
attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the PC/SC Lite pcscd daemon (root, by
default), by inserting a specially-crafted smart card. (CVE-2010-4530)

This update also fixes the following bug :

- Previously, CCID only recognized smart cards with 5V
power supply. With this update, CCID also supports smart
cards with different power supply.
